3:00 am
pants day. the idea is to ride public transportation in regular clothes but no pants and act completely normal. >> why you do that, i have no idea. another question for you: your question of the day responses. we asked you with all the glitz and balaam more -- glamour at this year's golden globe awards there were definite winners and losers. >> swaoepted to know who you thought was hot and who was not. >> meghan, the worst dressed, sienna miller and j.lo in her nude illusion dress. >> elizabeth says i think kaityn was the baddest there. nicole says halle berry looked terrible. >> it is so easy to be the armchair critic. >> they all get help from their stylists and

"fox & friends" starts now.
3:02 am
>>steve: welcome aboard. live from a not very chilly new york city where it is 50 degrees outside now. it is "fox & friends," america's number one cable news show. >>gretchen: peter johnson jr. here. i was in las vegas over the weekend. it was warmer here than las vegas. we begin with news developing overnight. another disturbing attack in benghazi, libya. the italian council general was in an armored car when gun men pulled up and starting shooting. no one was hurt. this happened four months after the attack on the u.s. consolate which left four americans dead. the flu vaccine for kids getting harder to find. some drug makers are reporting the vaccine for children between six months old and four years old is sold out. >> we've been administering so much of the flu shot since mid-december. we sold out. >> to hear people are trying to get it and can't
3:03 am
is kind of scary. >>gretchen: one manufacturer reporting a shortage of the liquid form as well as tamiflu given to children to slow or stop the symptoms. apparently they can't remake the vaccine. president george w.h. bush about to head home. his son said he's expected to be released from the hospital today. the spokesperson was a little more cautious saying we are hopeful the president can be discharged this coming week but we're still taking everything one day at a time. the president, bush sr., was hospitalized in november for a bronchitis-related cough. ben afleck at the golden globe scoring a standing ovation for winning best director. hostage thriller also won best oscar.
3:04 am
>> tony mendez is an american hero, making sacrifices for american lives every day. i want to thank them very much. >>gretchen: les miserables won three globes as well and hugh jackman for best actor. ann hathaway won for best supporting actor. the golden globe made "homeland" feel at home. and damion lewis picked up a globe for best actor in "homeland." >> it was a very funny show. tina fey hilarious at the beginning. in the meantime, if you print it, they will come. if you print a map that shows you exactly where legal gun owners live and their names and their addresses, which is bound to happen, and apparently according to to "newsday"
3:05 am
out of long island did. over the weekend reportedly a 70-year-old guy's house was burglarized by somebody trying to steal his gun safe. apparently they saw it in the paper. "the journal news" and they tried to steal it from the guy. >> i call it the kidnapping and burglary map of the hudson valley here in new york. now a state senator in that area is proposing new legislation to protect the names of gun owners and especially police officers, correction officers and retired police and correction officers to ensure that this kind of event does not happen. >>steve: it's two different bills. >> you've got a third bill he's proposing. >>gretchen: he actually proposed it before this burglary happened. it was on january 11 when he proposed it. senate bill 2132 would exempt disclosure under the freedom of information law. that bill would stop newspapers and other blogs
3:06 am
from being able to print names of people who legally own guns. the second bill would protect any police officer, peace officer, correction officer, retired police officer, et cetera. it would also cross state lines. for example, if somebody was a police officer in new york but now lived in new jersey, connecticut, pennsylvania, they would be protected as well. >>steve: this comes on the heels of what happened in newtown in connecticut. connecticut actually has a law where you cannot release names like this. we're going to find out whether or not new york state joins connecticut and other states banning the publication of legal gun owners. this list of 44,000 names was published by "the journal news." so a fox news producer confronted "the journal news" about this craziness. here's a little of what they caught on camera. >> why won't you talk to us? [inaudible] >> can you tell me why you guys released the names of the gun owners? >> no.
3:07 am
i'm sorry. i'm on the phone. >> hi, janet: >>steve: no action. >>gretchen: i think that was from judge jeanine's show. she has her show on the weekends. this is not her. that is the "journal news" publisher. judge jeanine was one of the names released. the fortunatelyer -- former judge who put a lot of violent people in jail, this is how this list can be dangerous because now people know where she lives and what kind of guns she has. >> people say they show journalistic courage to do this. why don't they have the courage to sit down in a venue and discuss it. these folks will not explain or discuss why they did this. and a lot of people in the journalistic community, apart from the people at fox news, are saying why
3:08 am
did you do this? what benefit is there to the community at large in terms of doing this? >>steve: you can tell the hypocrisy. they publish the list but then when asked by a journalist why did you do that, just keeps -- i'm talking on the phone, stuff like that. judge jeanine does have a program. we played you a snippet of her comments directly to "the journal news." she went after them again this weekend. listen. >> you think it's important to out us in the aftermath of the newtown shooting? how dare you connect law-abiding citizens who have gone through rigorous background checks, who have been finger printed, investigating and received judicial approval to exercise their second amendment right. how dare you compare them to a nut job on the lunatic fringe in desperate need of medication, playing violent video games for days at a time. this animal massacred
3:09 am
innocent babies. he didn't have a pistol permit. he didn't go through a rigorous background check to get a pistol permit. he took someone else's gun. and, by the way, although it's none of your business, there's a reason people have guns. we don't need your sanctimonious permission. and you dare put our families in danger? you pry into our lives. you put our privacy and security and our safety in jeopardy. and then you have nothing to say. how about i say it for you. you're nothing but a bunch of cowards, unwilling to defend yourself, frozen in fear. you screwed up. period. end of story. >>gretchen: judge jeanine will be joining us at 8:30 for more analysis about where this situation stands. >> joe biden has been tapped to come up with whatever they're going to come up with in congress and capitol hill in order to come up with a
3:10 am
comprehensive approach or ban on assault weapons. senator joe manchin, west virginia, and john mccain were on the cbs show over the weekend. here's what they have to say about it. >> how we got into a culture of mass violence. if you're just going to say it's all about guns and we need gun changes and bans, you're wrong. >> we need -- >> we need a comprehensive approach. >> do you think an assault weapons ban can pass the congress? >> no. >> do you think it should? >> no. >>steve: it's interesting, harry reid said over the weekend -- in the past harry reid voted against assault weapons bans. harry reid doesn't know whether or not it would pass congress either. he thinks it might get through the senate but it would probably not pass in the house. the other thing is joe biden and his commission are going to come up with their findings. tomorrow they're going to release it. the last time we had the debt commission findings, did the administration pay
3:11 am
attention to that? no. >> i think the commission knows what the findings are already. >>gretchen: joe biden heads this committee versus the other committee which was not the vice president. >> it's got to be more than something than just guns. it's got to look at the video games, look at the crazy movies. as senator manchin was saying a comprehensive approach to solving the issue. >>gretchen: that came up at the miss america pageant over the question. the winner, new york, was asked that question about gun control. i happened to be there as a former miss america. there she is, shocked to find out she was the winner. a wonderful moment in time right there that she'll never forget. i was honored to be able to be a small part of the broadcast of miss america. here's what i remember a few years ago. >> what did your evening gown look like the night you won?
3:12 am
>> this was the 1980's. everything was big. that meant the gowns weighed about 20 pounds full of beads. the most important thing is to go with your gut and what you want to wear. a lot of people said you had to wear white to win and i chose blue because that's what i felt good in. >> we had a lot of great -- i think we have pictures but maybe we don't have time to show them now. i guess we do. these are other former miss americas joining me. kyline barker on the left. looks fantastic. and susan powell. i got carded at the restaurant on the first day. that is a shocked look on my face. my husband was also shocked when i told him. let's see what else we have here. my parents had the opportunity to join me. these are all the former miss americas who showed up with the new winner in the center. leon carlson thanks for
3:13 am
your support all these years. >>steve: i read in the paper that the brand-new miss america was for a while a waitress at planet hollywood in actuary. she's orpblg -- in times square. she's originally from alabama. she was a waitress for awhile. at some point she was dead broke, only had five bucks in her pocket. thought it wasn't worth it. >> a dramatic story. lived in brooklyn. lived in manhattan. then went on a fitness plan where she dropped some weight and got really toned up. always a beautiful young woman. there she was earlier. i guess in 2010. and we saw her the other night. a beautiful, smart woman. a student at f.i.t. >>gretchen: fashion institute of technology for people who don't know. >>steve: she is fit. >>gretchen: that's fitting a a a as well because the miss america pageant is the largest scholarship in the world
3:14 am
for women. she wins a $50,000 scholarship to continue her education. this year she will serve as a focus for education and focus on stem which is science, technology, education and mathematics. >> it was a pleasant thing to watch. >>gretchen: we need more happiness. >>steve: 13 minutes after the top of the hour on this monday morning. looking for cheap government housing? probably not a good idea to fight and throw chairs. the story behind this nasty riot coming up straight ahead. >>gretchen: what did jodie foster, what was she saying at the golden globe that has everyone talking this morning? i loved her dress but i didn't necessarily understand everything that she was talking about. hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good?
3:15 am
sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. five days later, i had a massive heart attack. bayer aspirin was the first thing the emts gave me. now, i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen. [ male announcer ] be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen. [ woman ] learn from my story.
3:16 am
two. three. my credit card rewards are easy to remember with the bankamericard cash rewards credit card. earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time. [ both ] 2% back on groceries. [ all ] 3% on gas. no hoops to jump through. i earn more cash back on the things i buy the most. [ woman ] it's as easy as... one! -two. -[ all ] three! [ male announcer ] the bankamericard cash rewards credit card. apply online or at a bank of america near you. [ male announcer ] you've reached the age where you don't back down from a challenge. this is the age of knowing how to make things happen. sowhy let erectile dysfunction get in your way? talk to your doctor about viagra. 20 million men already have.
3:17 am
ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take viagra if you take nitrates for chest pain; it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. side effects include headache, flushing, upset stomach, and abnormal vision. to avoid long-term injury, seek immediate medical help for an erection lasting more than four hours. stop taking viagra and call your doctor right away if you experience a sudden decrease or loss in vision or hearing. this is the age of taking action. viagra. talk to your doctor. because vitamin d3 helps bones absorb calcium, caltrate's double the d. it now has more than any other brand to help maximize calcium absorption. so caltrate women can move the world.
3:18 am
>> a surprise from the white house last week when president obama announced plans to pull u.s. troops out of afghanistan sooner than we all thought. >> let me say it as plainly as i can. starting this spring our troops will have a different mission: training, advising, assisting afghan forces. >> initially u.s. forces were supposed to move to a support role this summer. so is this new troop withdrawal date going to be a problem? and more importantly, can we take the afghans at their word? let's ask u.s. army veteran and c.e.o. of concerned veterans for america. good morning. >> good morning. >> we find we have 66,000 troops approximately there now in afghanistan, moving to maybe 30,000 in 2013. and then perhaps in 2014 as little as 3,000 american troops perhaps.
3:19 am
what's your take on that, pete? >> well, my take all along has been that this deadline is incredibly detrimental toward the ability of our troops and allies to actually accomplish a mission there, establish a set of criteria at the very end where we can hand it over to the afghans. moving the deadline up is not a surprise. we remember what the president said to the russian prime minister medvedev about more flexibility after the election. well, this is flexibility manifesting itself. we're pushing everything up more quickly. moving up the time line contradicts a lot of reports we've seen about the readiness of the afghan national army, whether they will truly be prepared to secure the country both to protect the regime there but also ensure the mission we went there to execute, which is prevent al qaeda and radical islamist extremists from having a haven from which to operate, whether they'll be able to do that. that is still an open question making this
3:20 am
announcement -- >> what are we doing now, pete? some folks say we're kind of sitting ducks in some way. is the mission going on? what is the mission? what is the end goal in your mind as a veteran? >> sure. the end goal should be to secure america's interests. this is not about building a nation for afghan. let's be clear about that. however, i don't think a rush for the exits right now is the way to do it. a gradual, measured withdrawal based on conditions where we train the afghan national army to be capable. we help their political process move along and we maintain a counterterrorism effort. all that stuff can happen with less troops. the question is how many. it's not enough to say 3,000, 6,000, 9,000. that's an ill-informed discussion. how many do we really need in order to protect our soldiers, train the afghans and have a counterterrorism mission and provide logistics to the afghan national army? that is the number we should sloop for, not -- we should shoot for, not slap numbers on a page and aim
3:21 am
for them. >> legacy is important and honoring the lives is absolutely important and secure afghanistan is important. thanks for joining us this morning. we're going to stay in touch with you to see how this moves ahead. >> we bet you never heard this warning about flying. your coffee to explode at 35,000 feet. we're going to explain how that can happen. then hundreds of hunters, thousands of pythons. who can catch the most? one guy who is about to take up that crazy challenge joins us next on "fox & friends." (announcer) make mornings special, with fancy feast mornings gourmet cat food. mornings are delicious protein rich entrees
3:22 am
with gden veggies and egg. fancy feast mornings. the best ingredient is love. just begin with america's favorite soups. bring out chicken broccoli alfredo. or best-ever meatloaf. go to for recipes, plus a valuable coupon. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. meet the 5-passenger ford c-max hybrid. plus a valuable coupon. when you're carrying a lot of weight, c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. i obsessed about my weight my whole life. i figured i was just born that way. i was always on some new, life-stopping diet.
3:23 am
and then, weight watchers. it lets me be me. and i naturallyame a healthier me. i amazed myself. get used to it. because when a weight loss program is built for human nature you can expect amazing. introducing the new weight watchers 360 program. join for free and expect amazing. because it works.
3:24 am
3:25 am
today could be the day lance armstrong comes clean about doping. armstrong will sit down to tape an interview with oprah. armstrong says he's ready to speak candidly. multiple reports say he will admit that he used performance-enhancing drugs. and it was one of the hardest hit areas by superstorm sandy and in just a few hours demolition will begin on about 350 homes that were ravaged on staten island, new york. bulldozers and dumpsters already standing by to start the process. steve, tkpwre -- gretchen. >>steve: hundreds are heading to the florida everglades for the python hunting challenge. >>gretchen: a competition to cut down on the number of burmese python overwhelming the ecosystem there.
3:26 am
a professional python hunter is here. good morning. i didn't know there was such a profession. apparently they need you in florida. what's going on down there? >> our native animals are kind of having a tough time even before the python, the encroachment of man has pushed them back. now we have a new apex predator in the mix, and they're just taking out a lot of our native wildlife. >>steve: in fact, in some spots around the everglades, there are no rabbits, no foxes, very few raccoons and bobcats. rodney, they think they can kind of trace it back to hurricane andrew; right? now these python are out of control and you need to harvest them. what happened 15 years ago or so? >> i was in homestead for hurricane andrew, it was the end of the world. because of the climate, we have breeding operations that breed not only snakes, but birds and a lot of other things. when hurricane struck, all of that was just blown
3:27 am
away. there was a pretty big mass release of pythons. you add that to the people that bought a python as a pet, and two years later that pet bites them and they don't want to kill the pet, so they release him in the everglades. that's a real big problem. >>gretchen: here's the thing. this weekend you're going to be hunting these pythons. you don't decapitate them. what's the best way to try and catch them and actually get rid of them? >> well, it's kind of a touchy point. it must be donahue mainly. -- it must be done humanly. it can be done with a quick blast to the head with a weapon. if you take it to the veteran tphaeurpb as is an -- veterinarian which is an option he will likely drill at the base of the skull and scramble the brain. >>steve: the idea is to thin the herd python-wise. it kicked off over the weekend. i understand one of the things you've got to be really careful when you're out there is to make sure
3:28 am
you don't get bitten by a rattlesnake or something like that when you're looking for python? >> exactly correct. last summer i was chasing a python. it's really easy when you see a python, there's a lot of things that has to go through your mind at once. make sure you're on the line to intercept them. get yourself mentally prepared. it's easy to not be paying to what was's happening right at your feet. i was chasing a python and on my way back, in the same track i walked by a rattlesnake that would have really ruined my day. >>gretchen: the understanding, which should be important to mention, there is no natural predator for these pythons and that's why they need folks like you to go and do something about it. >> indeed. our native wildlife evolved without large constrictors in the ecosystem. they really don't have a natural fear of pythons. the learning curve is
3:29 am
pretty steep. usually their first encounter with a python is their last encounter. >>steve: they're having this python challenge. folks who would like more information, there are prizes ranging up to $1,500. rodney irwin, owner of allegheny societies in the miami area. thank you for joining us this early on "fox & friends." >>gretchen: he was one of a long list of president obama czars, cass sumstein. where is he now? >>steve: what jodie foster did or didn't do at the golden globe that has a lot of people talking. >>gretchen: first happy birthday to jason bateman. he, 44.
3:30 am
[ dylan ] this is one way to keep your underwear clean. this is another! ta-daa! try charmin ultra strong. it cleans so well and you can use up to four times less than the leading value brand. oh! there it is. thanks son. hey! [ female announcer ] charmin ultra strong has a duraclean texture that can help you get clean while still using less. and it's four times stronger versus the leading value brand. charmin ultra strong helps keep you and your underwear clean. we all go. why not enjoy the go with charmin ultra strong?
3:31 am
3:32 am
that's the question. every day. when you have the most advanced tools, you want to make something with them. something that helps. helps safeguard our shores. helps someone see through a wall of fire. helps those nowhere near the right doctor stand a chance. ... feeling in the extremities ? no. technology can do that. who can tell me the third life cycle stage of the frog ? it can take a sick kid to school. nathan. tadpole. and help ensure a constant supply of clean energy.
3:33 am
the things we build share one belief. that the world's biggest challenges deserve even bigger solutions. powerful answers. verizon. fiber one. uh, forgot jack's cereal. [ jack ] what's for breakfast? um... try the number one! yeah, this is pretty good. [ male announcer ] over a third of a day's fiber. fiber one. >> a tough fight to push a bill through a bitterly divided house of representatives. winning it required the president to make a lot of unsavory deals that had nothing to do with the big
3:34 am
issue. i wouldn't know anything about that. president lincoln struggled to abolish slavery reminds us that enduring progress is a caldron of principle and compromise. this brilliant show shows us how he did it and how we can do it again. >> that was hillary clinton's husband. oh man, that was exciting. >> it was bill rodham clinton. >> that looks like johnny depp. it is actually tina fey in a disguise earlier. when bill clinton introduced steven spielberg's cliff from "lincoln"hollywood went wild. steven spielberg gave the former president a big salute. >>gretchen: president clinton was talking about being president and maybe we can have action on capitol hill similar to
3:35 am
what lincoln did. if you've seen "lincoln" i think one of the biggest take is you actually remember it was republicans were the ones trying to eradicate slavery. it's interesting how times have changed and issues shifted and perceptions have also changed. >>peter: he was talking about principle and compromise are the hallmarks of american competence. >>steve: jodie foster has been in the movie-making business since she was three years old. last night she received the cecil b. demille award. she had a long and a bit of a rambling chat about her life, talking about how she's 50 now, she's single. she saluted her mother, her partner, her children. she's really been out there for so long in the public eye, and yet she's a very private person. here she is. >> if you had been a public
3:36 am
figure from the time that you were a toddler, if you had to fight for a life that felt real and honest and normal against all odds, then maybe then you too might value privacy above all else. privacy. >>gretchen: it was interesting because she was very ambiguous in a statement about what she was actually talking about. was she actually retiring from the business last night? a lot of people came away with that impression. she sort of spoke just on the fringe of the issue that she was actually trying to get across. everyone knows she has come out as a lesbian, but she didn't really actually say that last night. she showed her kids. she also talked about her partner who she says she's not really with anymore but they're raising the kids together. i couldn't get the entire message. was she saying reality tv was bad? was she saying she was retiring? >> i think she was saying shield be a retiring tv subject. the cecil b. demille award
3:37 am
is a lifetime tv award. it seems like she checked the boxes going through her life. >>peter: very revealing statement and it was confusing and kind of sad in some parts. obviously she looks wonderful. she's got a family. and she seems to have come through it. and a very talented actress. really a great actress. >>steve: she's terrific. >>gretchen: i'll say that i love her dress. it was my favorite dress of the night. let's talk about argo. have you seen that movie? it's a great, great film about the iranian hostage situation. true story. it was snubbed by the oscars. i think it was nominated for best film by the oscars. ben affleck is director. many people assumed he woulding on the list, and he was not. so what happened last night? he won. >>steve: good for him. take that, oscar. also argo did win best picture as well. he was very, very proud of that.
3:38 am
and he was just happy to be in such an esteemed company. >>peter: and the picture was produced by the real c.i.a. operative mr. mendez who kind of stumbled through the teleprompter, an older man. it was kind of touching as well because he's the real-life story behind argo. >>gretchen: one of the things people watch for on the show is what are people wearing. that ends up being the biggest news of the night. let's look at some of the dresses. here's jennifer lopez. there was a scene that was sort of -- >>peter: see through. >>gretchen: this is pretty covered up for her. this sort of sheer, nude tones were the theme of the night. we have kate hudson who i think was in the darker color. there she is. looking great in black. >>steve: claire danes who won again for "homeland" picture of red. >>peter: then halle berry, and i'm told that is
3:39 am
an angelina jolie leg pose. i didn't know that until -- >>gretchen: you weren't looking at the slit all the way up to her underwear line? >>peter: i thought that was jessica rabbit. >>gretchen: a lot of people didn't like the dress. did you see lucy lu. she had on quite a flowery print as well. it's in the eyes of the beholder. >>steve: i did see a number of dresses where it seemed like they had a plunging neckline down to the belt. they were plunging. >>peter: yes, i saw that too. and ms. mcafee, american idol fame. >>gretchen: let us know what you thought about that. you can e-mail us or twitter us as well. >>steve: what are you wearing today, peter? >>peter: wearing myself. >>gretchen: let's do headlines. thousands try to get their hands on housing vouchers in michigan. watch what happens.
3:40 am
>> a whole crowd bum rushed the whole front area. >> they started shifting us off the sidewalk. >> it was a mess. ridiculous out here. people been standing here since 6:00, 7:00 last night and still can't get an application. >> let's go. >>gretchen: the crowd kept growing. when vouchers were ready to be distributed, they stormed the door. organizers had to shut the whole event down. people started fighting, even throwing chairs. >> the next thing you know, the lights go out and people start going crazy. >> chairs was out here, old people. pregnant women. it was unfair. >> it's ridiculous. >>gretchen: people arrested four people for disorderly conduct. >>steve: the american military apparently played a part in france's botched attempt to rescue a hostage in somalia. president obama tells congress we had a limited role in the raid to rescue a french intelligence officer. that likely means intelligence are surveillance help.
3:41 am
i believe it was air sufrpls and what not -- air surveillance and what not. the hostage, at least one french soldier and militants were killed during the raid. as if flight attendants don't already have enough to deal, the f.a.a. is warning about exploding coffee packages. the agency says pressure builds up while the coffee is brewing causing the coffee to burst. flight attendants suffered first and second degree burns. the f.a.a. says the problem can be avoided by putting the package in correctly and keeping the machine clean. that's pretty nasty. >>steve: i heard of kay cups. >>gretchen: the wife of ham stka is complaining about treating of her husband's treatment in prison. she is complaining because hamza who has a hook for a
3:42 am
hand can't comb his hair. it is 50 degrees in new york city. maria molina is live in the fox weather extremes. i see the map behind you. that explains it all? >>maria: very weird weather pattern. we had warm weather across portions across the east coast and cold air across the west. two thirds of the country well above, places like new york city. colder air from canada has come south ward. we had freeze warnings across southern portions of californiacould possibly be damd because of how cold it is out there. that warm air across the east will be coming to an end. that jet stream will start to spill eastward. we'll see colder air moving through portions of the northeast and we'll be looking at temperatures much more january-like across right here, new york city. today enjoy the warmth
3:43 am
while you've got it. 55 the high in new york city. 80's across the state of florida. we are dealing with very dense fog across portions of the northeast from maine down into parts of the philadelphia area. it's likely we're going to be seeing delays at the airports because of the poor visibility and also very strong cold front headed eastbound producing misty weather across places in louisiana, mississippi. that cold air across places in the west will actually impact portions of this frontal system. we'll be seeing freezing rain across northeastern portions of the state of louisiana and west central portions of mississippi. we could actually be seeing accumulations of ice out here of up to half an inch. please be careful on the road ways. >>steve: maria, thank you very much. >>gretchen: coming up, could james bond be the answer to the gun debate?
3:44 am
vice president joe biden thinks yes. how close are we to making that smart gun a reality. up next. >>peter: a big change comes in happy meals. find out what's in, what's out.
3:45 am
3:46 am

3:49 am
we're joined by news specialist for, max slovik. good to see you, max. we've seen james bond movies. sometimes we think that technology looks so cool but is it actually real? the vice president says we're very close to this smart gun technology where the person who actually owns the gun would be the only one who could fire it. is that correct? >> there is a sort of technology in the works. it's very much still in its infancy. there are some promising leads but nothing concrete exists right now. >>gretchen: how would it exist? if it is a prototype right now, tell me how it works. >> there are two branches of technology for this. there's radio and there's biometric scanners. the radio system works. the prototypes that are most common and most successful are based on these radio scanners. the way they operate is
3:50 am
with a ring or bracelet that the operator wears. anybody who has access to that ring or bracelet can also operate the gun. so it's not a totally secure system in and of itself. >>gretchen: i know you have problems with it with regard to -- i didn't mean to cuts you off. i know you have problems with it with regard to self-defense because there is some sort of failure rate on it? >> it depends on the particular company developing it. it can be as high as 10%. there's also kind of a lag between when you grab the firearm and when the safety disengages and when seconds count, that is the last thing that you want to have happen come between you and your gun. >>gretchen: as somebody who is a gun specialist, do you see this becoming a reality, let's say, in the next decade? would it eventually be a good idea that you would be sort of finger printed coding so to speak, so only the person who owns the gun, licensed to have it,
3:51 am
actually uses it? >> it would be a great ideal if that was possible. maybe ten years from now there might be some better technology to support that type of safety. but there are also other pitfalls. anything that can be -- any security stkeupl that you -- sym that you have that's electronic can have other vulnerabilities like spoofing or blocking. with the biometric scanner, there are other hurdles. like if you're wearing a pair of gloves, it wouldn't work, wouldn't be able to scan. >>gretchen: i can imagine how people would immediately try to get past it. got to wrap it up. max slowik, thanks for your time. coming up on "fox & friends," it is supposed to save america's health but obamacare is making some people ill. there are ways to keep it from hitting some people too hard. next hour. the coolest cars you've never seen before like the

4:02 am
oscar? fox friends friend hour two for monday starts right now. >> steve: it's not just "argo," it's "zero dark thirty," which was the big movie this weekend at the box office. i saw it on friday night. it is fantastic. but a lot of people say, you know what? it makes america beats the evil doers and that's not the message that hollywood wants to put out there. >> peter: the director not named. >> steve: just like ben affleck, but he won last night. >> gretchen: she was a woman to boot. there is not a lot of them out there. we're going to talk to donald trump in a minute. we're just learning that the u.s. military playing a part in france's botched apart to rescue a hostage in somalia. president obama tells congress we had a limited role. intelligence or surveillance
4:03 am
helped, the hostage, one french soldier and 17 militants were killed during the raid. another disturbing attack in benghazi. the italian consulate, the general there was in an armored car when gunmen pulled up and started shooting. the gunmen took offment no one hurt. this happening just four months after the terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate there which left four americans dead. the flu vaccine is getting harder to find. some drug makers reporting the one for kids simply sold out. >> we had so much until mid-december. between mid-december and friday, we sold out. we hear people are trying to get it and i can't. kind of scary. >> gretchen: one manufacturer reporting a shortage of the liquid form of tamiflu. that's the drug that is given to people who have the flu to try to slow down the symptoms.
4:04 am
look at "argo"'s venge. ben affleck won best drama. win coming days after he was snubbed for an oscar nod at director. he paid tribute to the man who inspired "argo." >> tony mendez, he's an american hero and represents the clandestine service. our troops overseas, i want to thank them very much.

4:05 am
>> good morning. >> steve: there is a copy of your book there. go get it. i'm sure you were watching the hollywood foreign press association last night celebrate with their golden globe award. did you think it was interesting that the big winner last night was ben affleck's movie where it showed the united states triumphing over the iranians, it was a pro-america film. and then he got a snub by the oscar folks. just like kathleen bigelow, who has in the past won one, but because her movie, "zero dark thirty," was pro-american, showing exactly what it took to finally get bin laden, do you think both those films are being punished by oscar because they're pro-american movies? >> i don't think so. i hear from they're both very good. ben affleck has done a terrific job. i even "argo." i think it's terrible he was snubbed. maybe this is just bemitting.
4:06 am
maybe oscar need buzz. i think it's great he won. >> gretchen: i think it's interesting that there is a reason to maybe watch the golden globes and the oscars because maybe you don't see exactly the same winners and people get credited in different ways. >> the other thing is the golden globes have become bigger than they were. i think it's done an amazing job and nbc has done an amazing job of building it up. and i think the golden globes really have become much bigger than they were five or ten years ago. >> steve: it is interesting, both those films i mentioned, they're hailed by the foreign press and yet, they're not going to wind up with oscar nods for the directors at the big american awards show, the academy awards. >> which is too bad. which is really too bad. >> steve: what about this? let's switch gears a moment. i'm sure you've been listening over the last couple of weeks, we've been talking on the fox news channel about how the
4:07 am
journal news, which is a chain of suburban newspapers owned by the usa today people, they published a list of 44,000 legal gun owners and their homes and their names and they appear ton that interactive map we're showing there. apparently over the weekend, according to news day, some bad guys broke into a 70-year-old guy's house. i believe up in white plains. they knew exactly what they were looking for. they knew he had guns and they tried to steal his gun safe. what do you make of what they did, the newspaper, in publishing those names, now given the fact this poor guy subject to violence? >> i think with a they did is terrible. i think they shouldn't have been allowed. some states have laws against what they did. what they did was terrible. it's a troubled paper. they're down over 50% in the last number of years in terms of circulation. so it's a very troubled paper. i don't know if this is from a business standpoint. you never know with good publicity or bad publicity.
4:08 am
i don't know if this is good or bad for them. what they did was terrible and let's see what happens with them. but they are really suffering as a paper. they're so far down and everybody talks about it. but of course, a lot of other papers are so far down. it's amazing. >> gretchen: newspapers editorialize and many said they were editorializing from a liberal point of view and maybe a knee jerk to what happened in newtown. and many are saying these are legal gun owners and you put a lot of people in danger. there is a senator in new york introducing two bills to try and exempt the disclosure of these private citizens' information and also to protect the police officers because they could be in danger if their information was let out. would you agree? >> i would. you have beyond even the police officers who at least can forget themselves, but you shouldn't be giving out their address. but you have a woman being stalk paid maniac and she moved and left and she bought a gun to
4:09 am
protect herself and she was -- her address was given. now that particular person is starting to call her again. it's terrible what happened. terrible what they've done. let's see what happens to them and i don't know if suits will be brought against them or what will happen. but again, it's a paper that desperately needs help. >> peter: let's talk about that for a second. you used public lit. you've had more public lit than any -- publicity than any person in the world and it rolls off your back. what do regular people do when they're occupanted by this outfit that puts them in jeopardy? talk about suits. they may not have the ability to sue these people. but they're kind of really getting raked over the coals big time and their families are being put in jeopardy. >> peter, you're great lawyer. i know that for a fact. >> peter: thank you. >> you're a great lawyer. i'm a good client. that's true. i actually pay my bill. that's very good. you know exactly what i'm talking about when i say that i think they may very well have a
4:10 am
lawsuit against the journal news because what's taken place at least in certain circumstances, what's taken place is absolutely terrible. it shouldn't have happened. and i don't think that the journal news is free of any guilt or free of any damages. i think that somebody would very well have a lawsuit against the journal news in a certain circumstance, like as an example, the woman that was being stalked. so let's see what happens. i think a lot of interesting things will happen here. >> gretchen: let's talk a little about jack lew, former -- current chief of staff, about to get a new role under president obama. it's interesting because usually white house chief of staffs from time to time, you hear more about. he's sort of been in the background, although people who know him say he's a very hardened, tough negotiator. now he's going to be secretary of the treasury if he gets past confirmation. do you think this is a good idea for jack lew to be in this position? do you know him? >> i think he has to develop a new signature, that's one thing i can tell you. that signature is amazing when you look at it.
4:11 am
i really actually do analyze handwriting. i think you can tell a lot about a person by their handwriting. his handwriting is not quite as bad as people think. it's extremely secretive. it shows he's a very, very secretive person, unbelievably secretive. , which in itself is interesting, but it really is almost not handwriting. but more importantly, he said and very strongly, that the obama plan, obama plans for what he was going to submit in terms of budgets and everything else, were going to reduce the deficit. he knew that wasn't true and the deficit has gone through the roof and he said this to congress, deficit has gone through the roof since then. so he really -- there are a lot of republicans and one democrat, but there are a lot of republicans that didn't like his testimony. his testimony was false. and we'll see what happens. he's going to probably get the -- he's going to get it. a lot of things aren't being stopped. the republicans have not found a good way to stop things. and i'm not sure necessarily he
4:12 am
should get stopped. this was the president's choice. the president did win the election. the president does have the right to make appointments and this is one of his appointments. but what he told congress was totally false and probably knowingly false. >> steve: i'm sure when he's called before that senate committee he's gog have an explanation of what he meant then and what he means now. >> they were tough statements and terrible statements and they couldn't have been more wrong. >> steve: yeah. turns out to be that case. all right. mr. trump, thank you very much. have a great week. we'll see you back here on "fox & friends" next monday. >> fantastic. >> gretchen: coming up, wasn't the new health care law supposed to save americans money? it turns out it's having the opposite effect. how can you survive with your health care intact? there are so many unanswered questions now. we have the guide for you coming up next. >> peter: there's a reason they're called new york's finest. members of the nypd save a man's life using just their bare
4:13 am
hands. watch this. coming up.
4:14 am
4:15 am
4:16 am
>> gretchen: 15 minutes after the top of the hour. the election of barak obama guarantees four more years of government growth, many say. that's mostly due to the landmark health care legislation, the affordable care act. as the bureaucracy gets bigger, your coverage could actually get smaller? here to help us understand the new law, betsy mccoy, author of the book" beating observe observe." you've been an advocate of explaining what observe -- obamacare is all about. >> the book is actually a no
4:17 am
spin, easy to understand guide for people who know nothing about health insurance or health care except what they've experienced themselves. but there are big changes ahead for everybody. for example, most americans get their health insurance at work, through their own employer or their spouse's employer. but they may be losing that coverage. >> gretchen: why? >> because the law requires, being in 2014, that employers with 50 or more full-time workers, provide coverage. not just any coverage. the government mandated one size fits all plan, which will cost about twice as much as what many employers currently offer. so some employers are going to say, i can't afford that. i'll pay the penalty instead. other employers are going to push workers down to part-time status to evade the law all together. but if you're dropped at work, it doesn't mean you're going to be uninsured. you're not going to have that option because when you file your taxes, you'll have to attach proof that you are in a government-mandated plan. >> gretchen: wow. >> so if you earn too much to be
4:18 am
eligible for medicaid, you will have to go shop on the state health insurance exchanges. >> gretchen: so these health insurance exchanges, a lot of this is rolling out now. >> they'll be open in october. and most people have never heard of these. but they're like an 800 number, a web site, and a dmv type office. and they only sell the government man-dated plan. it's like going to a dealership that sells four door sedans. >> gretchen: they dictate what you're going to get. i thought obamacare was supposed to give you a choice? >> no, there really will be no choice. there will be bronze, silver, gold and platinum. but they all have the same coverage. only the co-pays differ. section 1311 puts the federal government in charge of your health care fort first time, even if you have a private plan
4:19 am
you paid for yourself. the secretary of health and human services can still dictate what doctors do, what kind of information they collect from you and what kind of treatments they phen: i know you're concerned about doctor shortages. but let's talk about seniors. they're going to get less care? >> they're going to get less care because believe it or not, cuts to medicare pay for more than half this law. so the chief actuary of medicare warned some hospitals will stop accepting medicare, where will seniors go? other hospitals will have to spread nurses thinner to make ends meet. and on average, according to the actuary, a senior will get $1,431 less care per year by the end of the decade. >> gretchen: that's scary because there was already an issue about doctors not taking medicare. >> it's going to get worse. and worst of all, probably, the money not being spent on seniors, it's going tore bureaucracy. the spending on government administration, bureaucrats telling doctors what to do is going to soar from 28 billion to
4:20 am
68 billion. so unfortunately, not money to make people better or to prevent illness. >> gretchen: wow. if you want the easy to read guidebook on what may be ahead, check out new book "beating obamacare." >> thank you. >> gretchen: coming up, with talks of spending more and raising the debt ceiling, it doesn't look like washington is going to look out fort taxpayer any time soon. now states taking matters into their own hands. stuart varney is going to explain that for us next. then "fox & friends" number one with humans and dogs. you're helping us prove it. your adorable pictures are pour not guilty and we're sharing them. stick around years ago, my doctor told me to take a centrum silver multivitamin every day. i told him, sure. can't hurt, right?
4:21 am

>> steve: want some news? we got it by the numbers. first, 2200. that's how many full-time jobs ford is add to go its work force this year. the most in about ten years. the auto maker says this is due to expanding its production line - up of fuel efficient cars. that's a better idea. next, five cents. that's how much the cost a gallon of gas went up in the last three weeks. this comes after not seeing a price hike for three months. and finally, $24 million. that's how much "zero dark thirty" made at the box office this weekend, making it the number one movie in america. it's terrific. mr. johnson, over to you. >> peter: thank you, steve. if you're waiting for the federal government to lower taxes, don't get your hopes up. that's why several red state lawmakers are taking matters into their own hands, making changes to state level taxes and in some cases, eliminating them all together. stuart varney is the host of varney and company. our friend on the "fox business"
4:25 am
network. good morning. >> good morning, peter. >> peter: is this good news or bad news for americans? >> here is the story, you're not going to get lower tax rates at the federal level. not going to happen. >> peter: no. >> but it might happen at several states. the states are now the laboratory for tax reform. two states in particular. you want to keep your eye on, first of all, louisiana. governor bobby jindal, he wants to eliminate personal income taxes and corporate taxes. that is a radical move. he wants to shift instead to a sales tax, higher sales tax, shifting from income taxes to consumption taxes. he thinks that will give the state growth, bring in employers, create jobs, make the economy of louisiana expand, and basically progress. >> he's saying if you make louisiana a great place to come, companies will come. >> yes. >> peter: and people will have work? >> yes. >> peter: but the trade-off is, higher sales tax. so the question today is, that a regresssive tax?
4:26 am
>> yes. >> peter: as you economists say? >> yes. >> peter: what does that mean? >> everybody pays it. no relation to how much you earn. it's how much you spend. you pay tax according to what you spend. a sales tax, it tax consumption. so in that sense, yes. it is regresssive. but on the other hand, if the absence of income taxes creates a growing economy, everybody wins from that. >> peter: some states don't have income tax. >> there are seven. i'll read them, alaska, florida, nevada, south dakota, texas, washington, and wyoming. on the map. these states have no income taxes at the state level. louisiana wants to become the eighth state and north carolina, may become the ninth state. even oklahoma, they, too, are considering getting rid of personal income taxes at the state level. >> peter: these are in states mostly where the republicans are in charge of the state house and the legislature. >> the last election left 27 states run by a single party --
4:27 am
sorry, 37 states. 25 of them are republican run. they want tax reform. so the states may be the laboratory of tax reform, which are not going to get to the federal level. >> peter: smart? >> the move is good. >> peter: we're going to watch at 9:00 o'clock. varney and company on the fox business channel. good to see you. >> thank you very much. >> peter: next on the rundown, a major airline running a scheme to avoid millions in taxes? the bombshell accusations. then they're the finest and happen to be the strongest. a group of new york city cops you'll ever meet, saving a man's life by lifting a car like superman with their bare hands.

>> steve: welcome back. even more evidence that dogs love "fox & friends." you've been sending in hundreds of pictures. here are a couple of more we have gleaned from the e-mail machine of our canine friends. here is wheezy watching the dogs who love "fox & friends." that was on our friday telecast, i believe. yes indeed. texas congressman brought his
4:32 am
dogs to work on friday and the west highland white terrier angus, also as you can see, loved our segment. so they snapped a picture and sent it to us. >> gretchen: the dog's feet are off the ground! that's an action shot. >> peter: right up against the tv, want to go hear every word. >> gretchen: you know why? look closely what's on the screen. another pooch. >> peter: that's right. so if you can get your dog to take a picture of another dog watching another dog on this show, we will run that and then there will be a prize. >> steve: by the way, the dog on tv in that congressman's office, not the dog jumping up, but the dog actually picked, that is eric bolling's dog that was featured on this program on friday. >> gretchen: a hot commodity. so are you actual lea offering free legal advice as a prize? i don't think we can do that. >> peter: we'll work something out. >> gretchen: let's do some headlines. united airlines full of hot air? that's the focus of a lawsuit expected to be filed in a few
4:33 am
hours. the regional transportation authority claim they're making bogus claims about fuel purchases to avoid paying millions of dollars in taxes the agency says there is one employee where they're buying it and doesn't have a computer. the agency says the fuel is really bought in chicago which is a much higher sales tax. united says the suit is without merit. >> peter: chaos as thousands try to get their hands on housing vouchers in michigan. >> a whole crowd just bomb rushed the whole front area. >> they started shifting us off the sidewalk. >> this is ridiculous. people been standing here since 6:00 o'clock, 7:00 o'clock last night and still can't get an application. >> let's go! >> peter: the crowd kept on growing and when vouchers were ready to be distributed, they stormed the door. organizers had to shut the event down. people started fighting, even throwing chairs. >> next thing you know, the
4:34 am
lights go out and people started going crazy and they were going to cancel it. >> kids was here action old people, pregnant women. it was unfair. >> ridiculous. >> peter: police arrested four people for disorderly conduct. >> steve: you know those blue envelopes you get stuffed with coupons once or twice a month? now you can get as you drive. valpack has a new app that uses a gps in a person's phones and sends special offers from nearby businesses to the car's voice activated sync system. a driver can ask to hear the offers as they drive and redeem a coupon once the car stops. about a million new ford and lincoln models are set up with the app and the syny technology if you want to save money. >> gretchen: they're the finest and may be the strongest. amazing video of a dozen new york city police officers lifting a taxi off of a pedestrian who was hit bay car in the bronks.
4:35 am
the cops surrounded the vehicle and picked it up until ems workers were able to pull him out. he was rushed to the hospital where he's said to be in critical condition. >> steve: than, that was great. >> peter: they do stuff like that all the time great. to see that on tape. >> steve: meanwhile, here in new york city, it's 50 degrees, it's tale of two temperatures. warm here in the northeast. people taking advantage of the weird weather, no jackets. some even wearing shorts. it was around 60 degrees in philly this weekend. out in california, temperatures are hovering around freezing, threatening to damage the crops. for the lappettest on this -- latest on this crazy january in mid january, let's go to maria mowly it in a. this -- molina. >> it's once in a while. some of those temperatures in southern california haven't been this cold since february 2011. so close to two years that we haven't been seeing temperatures that cold across even areas in
4:36 am
southern arizona. so the western two-thirds of the country dealing with winter weather, very januarylike and actually below its average for this time of year, up to 30 degrees below that across places in the rockies. 13 for i couldn't high temperature today in denver. single digits across places in utah. 11 for your high temperature. minneapolis. the mild temperatures continue. new york city expecting a high at 55 degrees. very muggy out here. we do have some dense fog in place and also misty weather going on. so we could be looking at travel delays across portions of the dor. freeze warnings across southern arizona, southern nevada, and also southern portions of the state of california. we have frost advisories. some of you in southern california could be scraping off frost off your car windshield. strong frontal boundary with rain n places in the mid mississippi valley and across parts of texas. even had severe weather, very
4:37 am
rare during the month of january that there was a confirmed tornado in western parts of kentucky. i believe that was hampton county with an ef-2 confirmed. maximum winds of 120 miles per hour. we're going to continue to deal with areas of rain across parts of the southeast and also into the northeast and this front will actually stall out across portions of the southeast over the next several days. another thing to note, we too have cold enough air in place across northeastern louisiana and west central portions of mississippi that some of that rainfall could come down and freeze over on roadways. we are looking at ice accumulations possible, up to a half inch. >> steve: all right. we thank you very much. of course, there are some thick fog all the way from new england down through the mid atlantic. so there could be some travel delays today. >> peter: as it did over the weekend. >> gretchen: talk about a roller coaster ride, amazing playoff game in atlanta. that was an amazing game between the falcons and the seahawks where w a ticket to the afc
4:38 am
title game on the line. i didn't think that the atlanta team would pull this offment i was watching on the airplane. that field goal in the last few seconds, amazing. >> you know, basically a huge roar went out from the metro area here when that field goal went through. there are a lot of people with smiling faces in atlanta. but there might be some bosses with people dealing with coming in to work late because this party went on. it was pretty much in the bag for the falcons 'til late when lynch drove into the end zone, giving the seahawks a lead with 31 seconds left. then the falcons drove to the 33-yard line, and that's when matt brian kicked a 49-yarder with 8 seconds left that was an unbelievable kick that just made this place go crazy. but it still wasn't over because russell wilson had one last shot in the end zone. a hail mary that he -- that was
4:39 am
intercepted and finally the party was on here in atlanta. because of this, the falcons will be taking on the san francisco 49ers next sunday at 3:00 o'clock eastern. that's going to be the nfc championship game. then the afc championship game which will pit the new england patriots versus baltimore ravens. but we're not too worried about the super bowl just yet. right now the falcons fans are just enjoying what happened here yesterday. >> gretchen: thanks very much for that live report. i don't know if you were watching the game, but the other coach, called a timeout burks not before the guy could get the kickoff. and he missed he missed the field goal in sort of the practice and then made it. >> steve: with a a night. remember four years ago we noticed that the obama administration was naming all sorts of czars? we're wondering where czar are they now is this today we're
4:40 am
featureing mr. rules. the regulatory czar. >> gretchen: from 2009 to 2012, during his term, federal regulations increased 7.4%. he resigned in august 2012. he's currently a harvard professor of law and director of behavioral economics. >> peter: he's going back to harvard. and he the president met at the university of chicago and it's an interesting statistic, 7.4% increase in regulations. the president said as he was going out the door, he shepherded our review of existing rules to get rid of those that cost too much or no longer make sense. an effort that's already on track. but at the same time, we see it's gone up almost 8% in terms of the code of federal regulations. so there was to get rid of paper it is work and get rid of rules, but it appears that his legacy more rules and maybe more. >> steve: they added a whole bunch during the first four years. the question is l they have a
4:41 am
new regulatory czar and add more? >> peter: add another 8%! >> steve: stay tuned. we'll know soon enough. >> gretchen: coming up, some of the world's worst teachers are going to get a second chance. they could be rehired because their failing records were wiped clean. we'll tell you about that. >> steve: this will bug you. >> peter: then they consider themselves modern day pirates, living off sunken treasure. they're ship wreck men here live. >> steve: aflac trivia question of the day, born on this day in 1941, this actress won an oscar for her performance in "network ." be the first person with the correct answer and you'll be our winner music: "make someone happy"

4:46 am
>> thank you for having me. >> steve: apparently, and this is infuriated a lot of people, when we found out about it. you heard about this for years. if a teacher winds up with an unsatisfactory rating, if they agree to retire, get out of the school district, they will retire with a satisfactory rating on their record. the problem is, then once they retire, they can go someplace else, get a job, and the new school district doesn't realize that that teacher was a dud? >> yeah. it's unfortunate. it's referred to as the dance of the lemons, to have an ineffective teacher have the ability to leave your school, your school district, and go to another school or different school district, sometimes unbeknownst to that new school. >> steve: how long has this been going on? >> for years. this is not anything that's new. but if you see it through the eyes of a principal who is being held accountable for scores and achievement in their own school, they have a teacher that's a dud, all too often the system is set up that in order to remove that ineffective teacher, it can take years. so very often there is a deal
4:47 am
that's done behind the scenes. you agree to leave. i'll give you a satisfactory rating and then it's on the next guy to figure it out. >> steve: is hypothetical, you were a principal for a while. so you know what's involved in getting rid of a teach who are is not up to the standards. >> absolutely. >> steve: during your career as a principal, how many did you have to get rid of? >> i'd say over the years, i had to move four or five teachers. >> gretchen: how complicated is it? >> very complicated. it's very unfortunate because you have to be able to prove over a long period of time that you provided a level of support to that teacher and they want to defend themselves and have a union that will defend them to the end. the process can take a very long time and it's very damaging to morale for the rest of the staff as you're going through the process. >> steve: i can imagine because -- 99.99% of the teachers out there are fantastic and we love them because it's the hardest job in the whole world. but it's those few that they don't live up to the high standard that the other teachers
4:48 am
have, the high bar that they have set. and then it's just not helpful. if your kid is parked in a bad teacher's class, it's infuriating. in many cases, it's like a lost year. >> absolutely. bad all the way around and alt evidence shows if you have a lost year, it sets you back years. so the reality that we have to come up with a system that will allow us to be able to remove ineffective teachers much more quickly. that's the only reason that principals and school districts do the deal is because it takes so long to get rid of them. >> steve: i have a magic wand. i'm going to make you the secretary of education for the united states. bing of the how do you fix it? >> i have a process that within 30 to 60 days, you have an opportunity to have your hearing with all deliberate speed, make your case, both cases, both sides make their case. a decision is made, a decision is made and at the end, if it's ineffective, you got to go. therefore, principals would not have to do those deals. >> steve: essentially a teacher would wind up in front of a jury of whom?
4:49 am
>> of administrators and best indication scenario, of their peers. >> steve: wouldn't they look out for a fellow teacher, a fellow member of the union? >> well, you can always have that. there is no perfect scenario. but the reality is that the case has to be made, the case has to be made a lot quicker than it's made. >> steve: david banks from the eag the academy in new york, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> steve: by the way, we did reach out to the department of education here in new york city for a statement. we are still waiting for its response. meanwhile, next up on this monday, meet the modern day pirates who live off of sunken treasure. how do they do it? ship wreck men here next. good morning, guys. first, on this date in 1973, "you're so vain" by carly simon had us all singing. ♪ ♪ you had me several years ago

4:58 am
a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure
4:59 am
or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, including celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you've had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion.

[ applause ] >> gretchen: plenty of excitement. jennifer lopez turning heads on this. and this neck line. those are your headlines. >> steve: good for ben affleck. like gretchen said, he was shut out from getting a director nod from the oscars, as was katherine bigelow who is the director of "zero dark thirty," which is -- a lot of people in hollywood have condemned it
5:05 am
saying, it's an american government propaganda film and perhaps that some have speculated from the twitter verse and the blogosphere is why it didn't get a director nod. >> gretchen: it's supposedly a great film. let's talk about this story, here in stock, but it applies to the country, there was a new york newspaper outside of new york city that decided to disclose for some unknown reason, all of the people, 40 some thousand people who legally own guns and have permits for them in their particular county and their area. now guess what? a lot of people said, first of all. >> legal? number two, what's going to happen now to these so-called sitting ducks? now the whole world knows who has guns, who doesn't. here is the publisher of that newspaper. she is defended the right to publish it, but now there has been a burglary over the weekend of an elderly man who lives in white plains new york, and the burglars attempted to steal his guns in the safe.
5:06 am
they were not successful. >> steve: because they knew exactly where they were. thanks to the journal news, which is owned by the usa today company and you got the editor there. she is one of the people ho decided hey, this is a great idea. the people who broke into this guy's house in white plains knew exactly, he's got guns here somewhere. let's find them. valley they tried to break into his gun safe. they did not do it. however, peter, right now here in new york state, there is a state senator who is trying to change the law so that new york is like connecticut, which would not allow it. >> peter: senator ball of hudson valley saying we need to do what 29 states do in the united states, have a right to carry confidential validity law, which protects the name and personal identification of people that have gun permits like this. some say it's a long, long time coming. now, what's happened, though, is the people with journal news have been running literally and hiding, literally, from when
5:07 am
reports from other outlets say, why did you do this? were you just being wise guys? were you just saying to people that have the right to carry a gun, oh, you want this right to carry a gun? now we're going to out you. and they refuse to comment over and over and over again. >> steve: right. some of them were critical, people who worked at the newspaper, after some people on-line actually published the addresses, the home addresses of people who work at the newspaper. they go, wait a minute. now people are going to know where we live. what the newspaper did was the newspaper published the names and addresses of people who legally own guns. provides a road map for the bad guys so they can either go okay. that house has a gun or that house does not have a gun. >> peter: harm should come to no one as a result of this, but they should be explaining why they've done this and put so many people in harm's way. >> gretchen: judge jeanine pirro was one of the people whose name
5:08 am
was disclosed. she will be here at 8:20 just a few minutes from now to explain what her thoughts are on this whole thing. in the meantime, can an assault ban, the weapons -- assault weapons ban pass congress? it passed before. many people say that it didn't really do anything to curb violence. some disagree that. there was a republican and a democrat on cbs's show over the weekend talking about whether or not that could actually happen again as joe biden gets ready to release his plan tomorrow. >> how have we got ton a culture of mass violence? whether if you're just going to say it's all about gun, then you're wrong. if you think it's -- >> what do we need? >> a comprehensive approach. >> do you think an assault weapons ban can pass the congress? >> no. >> do you think it should? >> no. >> steve: in fact, senator harry reid says it probably could not pass congress. it might be able to pass the
5:09 am
u.s. senate, but it might not be able to get through the u.s. house. so it will be interesting to see exactly what sort of a plan joe biden's team is going to come up with, but it clearly -- if they're going to come up with some suggestions, you got to help that not only does it address gun violence and enforcing the laws already on the books and background checks that are already on the books that are sometimes infrequently enforced, but also hollywood. and video games and the culture. >> gretchen: it could be that there is a lot of talk that the president will just issue some sort of executive order to pass some of this and go around. >> steve: but they're limited to that. >> gretchen: well, we'll see how that all pans out later on. >> peter: i don't think you'll see an executive order on the assault weapon ban. even he would realize it was unconstitutional and illegal. >> gretchen: let's talk about the smart guns. you may be have seen this in the james bond movies. so take a look at this and see if you actually think this may be coming to a place near you
5:10 am
sometime soon as joe biden does. is it a good idea? >> the .9 millimeter, it's been coded so only you can fire it. it's more of a personal statement. >> steve: so that's from the movie "skyfall" where james bond had this gun that essentially only works for him. and it sure sounds like joe biden must have seen the bond movie when he was describing smart gun technology. here he is on friday. >> that were available on every weapon sold, there is significant evidence that would -- may very well have curtailed what happened in connecticut. >> steve: the thing about what would curtail what happened in connecticut is remember the kid who stole the guns from his mother, the gun high school been purchased legally. because he was not really in the system, he could have probable
5:11 am
lea applied for a gun and gotten it anyway. >> gretchen: right. the idea behind the smart gun is that your fingerprint would be the only one that would allow it. so the gun erin would be the only one able to operate the gun. >> peter: it would stop stolen guns from being used in crimes. >> steve: yeah. >> gretchen: over the weekend i had the pleasure of being in has grace for the miss america packagent, 2013. here as a former miss america, i'm with susan powell on the right, another former miss america, eileen barker on the left. i had a chance to be part of the live broadcast on abc as well. >> what did your evening gown look like the night you won? >> this was the 80s. so it was full of bads. the most important thing is go with your gut and what you want to wear. a lot of people said you had to wear white to win and i chose blue because that's what i felt good in. >> gretchen: that's the essence of competing in these types of things, talent, scholarship, and
5:12 am
self confidence, quite frankly. so let's take a look at -- let's show the winner. >> peter: always a winner. >> gretchen: that's not what i meant. i meant miss new york. this is me carded. they must have had their beer goggles on. i was carded for a glass of wine. quite stunned. there she is. this is who we should be talking about today. mallory hagin. she's from new york. she went to the fashion institute of technology. she won the crown. she's 23 years old. she is going to be speaking out about education this year. largest scholarship program in the world for women, the miss america packagent. she's going to be talking about stem, science, technology, engineering and mathematics. she won a $50,000 scholarship for education. >> peter: originally from alabama. >> steve: that's right. >> peter: now a brooklyn lady. >> steve: yeah. apparently she sold some real estate for a while. she had a number of odd jobs. she's been a waitress at planet hollywood here in times square.
5:13 am
at one point, according to the las vegas newspaper this morning, she was down to her last five bucks. she didn't give up and go home. she kept on and saturday night she became miss america. >> gretchen: that's what the program is all about. it's to fund education. inc. tell you thousandses and thousands and thousands of women have been able to go to college as a result of competing at any level, local, state, or even miss america stage. so always a pleasure to take part in that. she'll be here tomorrow in our 8:00 o'clock hour, meet mallory tomorrow. >> steve: that's great. congratulations. meanwhile, coming up, a hook hand terrorist says he's being mistreated in jail. why? because of the hook, he can't comb his hair. we can't make this one up. you'll hear details straight ahead. >> peter: then who is in? country?t and who is running we're play ago political game of chess with the great joe trippi coming up next. he's gog move those pieces around. >> steve: run back outside. >> peter: absolutely. going, going!

the video was posted to the armed forces site, welcome home and has been reposted all across the internet. that is absolutely beautiful. >> peter: terrific. >> steve: meanwhile, a tale of two temperatures. warm here in the northeast and a rare winter blast out west. our own maria molina has been tracking it all morning long, trying to explain why it's 50 degrees right now in new york city. >> yes. very strange. good morning. good morning, everybody. we actual lea is a big dip in the jet stream out west. that's really the reason why we're looking at all of that cold air across the western two-thirds of the country. that's allowing all of that cold air from canada to sink southward. we're seeing temperatures, as much as 30 degrees below what's average here across portions of the rock reese. if you live in the northeast, you'ven enjoying the mild air action the cold air is headed east and we will be looking at more january-like weather as we head into your thursday and also into friday. temperatures will be returning to what's normal. for today, enjoy it. 55 for the high.
5:37 am
60s in atlanta and raleigh. 13 your high in denver. 21 over in rapid city. 11 in minneapolis. across southwestern portions of the u.s., we have a number of freeze warnings in effect because of how cold it is. some places looking at temperatures almost two years ago, this cold. we really haven't been seeing temperatures this cold since two years ago across portions of the southwest u.s. we're dealing with a frontal boundary. heavier downpours across portions of the south. some colder air mixing into portions of northeastern louisiana and also mississippi. we could even be seeing freezing rain here with ice accumulation expected. be safe on the roadways. >> steve: a weird winter. thank you very much. >> gretchen: i'm not complaining about the warm weather here. >> peter: no, no. >> steve: not going to last. >> peter: what's wrong with a new york newspaper publishing the names and addresses of legal gun owners? a he will loar he man was just
5:38 am
burglared. >> steve: judge jeanine, whose name was on the list, sent people to confront them. >> can you tell me where you released the name of the gun owners? >> i'm sorry. >> janet. >> as you can see, we had the door slammed in our face. >> we're joined on the phone by judge jeanine pirro. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> steve: ironic, isn't it? that newspaper puts out everybody's name and address and the fact that they own guns. but then when your producer wanted to talk to them about why they did it, they're on the phone. they're too busy. >> it's even worse than that because these guys will track you down and everyone in your family to find you. but we have been going after them for two weeks straight every day to get an answer as to why they published the names and
5:39 am
addresses of legal gun owners. make no mistake, these legal gun owners have gone through a process where they've been investigated. there have been background checks. there is judicial review, i know. i would sign these permits. and you do a very thorough investigation. now all of a sudden, the purveyors of information are shut down, they're hiding and guess what? they're hiding behind guys with guns. so they've hired bodyguards. and the one statement that they gave out where they said, we felt it was important in the aftermath of the newtown shooting that we identify gun owners in westchester and rockland. if you parce their statement out, what they're saying is, we are comparing the shooter of innocent children to legal gun owners! it is a height of hypocrisy. >> gretchen: very much an editorial opinion on why they did this. now let's bring people up to date because over the weekend,
5:40 am
many people feared this was going to happen and now it apparently has. the people have tape this list and -- taken this list and burglars went to the home of an elderly man who did own guns, tried to get into his home. they did succeed at doing that. they did not get the guns out of the safe u. about is this what we're going to see now, these people, including yourself, are going to become victims? >> well, i think that the journal news has certainly put in jeopardy those who have guns for the gang bangers, drug dealers, i mean, people who are looking for guns, and by implication, those who don't have guns. look, if i have a choice, i'm going to go to a house and burglarize the one that doesn't have a gun. so everyone should be up in arms, so to speak n westchester because they have been identified as either having guns or not having them. and the journal news continues on lockdown. they continue in hiding. they won't explain it and people are calling for not only the
5:41 am
cancellation of subscriptions, but advertisers are pulling their ads. i know this for a fact. >> peter: beyond that, as a remedy, does someone whose gun is stolen as a result of being published in that way, do they have any remedy in the law, in terms of going after this newspaper for money damages, in your opinion? >> well, i think it would be a very difficult case, as you well know. but i also suspect that given the history of the journal news, their editorializing their antigun stance, that one might be able to at least argue that they have, because of their dislike of guns, they have put gun owners in jeopardy, that there is a kind of an intent on their part to highlight who these people are, you could certainly make the argument.
5:42 am
>> peter: and cause ago -- cause ago risk of harm. >> steve: how angry are you? >> i'm a public official. i ran for judge and d.a. >> steve: give me a number. >> as far as i'm concerned, you know, i'm not worried about it, but i think that most people are at a 9 or a 10. this is at a boiling point in westchester and rockland. people are fuming. >> steve: they are indeed. >> gretchen: it's important to point out, 29 states have laws that do not allow newspapers or blogs to publish that information. coming up next a major update on the heal of president george h.w. bush. we have the new details from his doctors and his family. right back why do people count on sunsweet prune juice to stay fit on the inside?

5:46 am
>> steve: brand-new details just in moments ago about the health of president george herbert walker bush. joining us outside methodist hospital down in houston, kriv reporter, andrea watkins. what can you tell us? >> good morning. bush's family is very hopeful that he's going to get out of the hospital early this week, but just got a text message from the spokesperson, jim mcgrath, who said it is up to the doctors. now, the reason we're talking about it today is that the president's son, jeb bush, did say over the weekend that today was going to be the day. bush 41, as we call him, has been in the methodist hospital here in the med center for 52 days now. his problems started started wit of bronchitis in early november, continued with a bad cough. he has been treated with medications, breathing treatments, and we thought he was getting better, but he
5:47 am
spiked the fever just before christmas and that put him in critical condition, in the intensive care unit. then he got out of icu and jeb bush is saying his father will be able to go home today. certainly everybody is optimistic. the best news is we're at least talk being it. 7 1/2 weeks in the hospital is certainly long enough. i'm sure they'll be glad to go home when they can. back to you. >> steve: all right. fingers crossed that it's today. thank you very much for the live report from houston. gretch, over to you and frank. >> gretchen: thank you. is the message of the republican party getting lost in translation? according to an election day poll twice as many americans say that they think that the gop is fighting for the wealthy and big business rather than for hard working taxpayers and small business. so where is the party's message getting lost and how can republicans move forward? frank luntz joins me now. you know all about words and message examining how to do it. so let's talk about the number one thing, the language errors
5:48 am
you have pointed out versus adjustments. you believe the error is smaller government, the adjustment should be more effective and efficient government. why are those words so much more important? >> because the american people don't care what the size of government is. they do care what types of services government gives and quite frankly, how much government takes. and so that is important in this tax debate. barak obama is very good at this. you always hear him say the words, a fair, reasonable approach. those are focus group words. those are polling words. >> gretchen: of course. >> the american people are looking for government that doesn't take more than what it needs to do the do it well and quite frankly, allows american taxpayers to keep more of their hard earned income. >> gretchen: so you talked about taxes. your second area is tax reform. the adjustment, simpler, fairer tax code. >> it's about the process. what they're look for is the result. quite frankly, the irs is the most disliked, distrusted
5:49 am
institution in washington. the american people know that they're paying too much and they're not getting enough. so when you focus on the outcome rather than the process, that's what connects to the american people. >> gretchen: capping spending is the wrong way to say it. controlling spending. just a slight change and one word could make that much of a difference? >> and that simple because capping spending is temporary. controlling spending is permanent. the american people do not believe, and i emphasissed this to the white house. they do not believe we have a tax problem. they believe we have a spending problem. they believe that washington spending should be under permanent control. this is where the president and the administration have got it wrong. they think by raising taxes they'll succeed. americans want spending cut. >> gretchen: the error is controlling growth of medicare and social security. the adjustment is save and strengthen entitlements. i guess that sounds better, doesn't it? >> save and strengthen, and medicare and social security, the american people believe they paid for it. thenned it and therefore, they should receive it.
5:50 am
and they want washington to make the changes now so that these programs are vibrant in the future. >> gretchen: all right. it's so interesting how just a short change of a word can make all the difference in the world. you know all about it. frank luntz, thanks so much for your time. >> a pleasure. thank you. falcons weren't the only stars of yesterday's game. watch this. ♪ o'er the ram parts we watched ♪ ♪ were so gallantly streaming ♪ . >> gretchen: now the tenors are in new york city and performing for us live, coming up next. look at those poses. first, let's check in with hemmer for what's coming up at the top of the hour. >> i used to be a member of that group. >> gretchen: i thought you were a baritone. >> i have an amazing singing voice. it's so good, you will not hear it. good morning to you. hope odd great weekend. >> gretchen: fantastic. >> we are getting ready for the next big battle in washington and it's not the budget. we'll tell what you it is. is your state cutting tacks, you
